5 Quick Home Decorating Tips under $50

Do you find that sometimes you just want a change in your home decorating? I have childhood memories of moving the furniture around in my room to create a new look; the need for decorating change started young for me! For all of you looking for a home decorating idea, I have five tips, and the bonus is that they can be done for less than $50!

1. Add a fun mirror.

If you have an area in a room that may be drab or dark, consider adding a mirror. For a modern look, click here for a 47” round mirror from Target. Hang it above a book case, small wall table, in a dark hallway, or anywhere needing a fresh look.

2. Add a plant.

Plants are fabulous for instant home décor, and they offer health benefits by purifying the air.  You can fill an empty spot with a lovely color of green. You can pick up affordable palms that can be found at your local home store such as Home Depot. Now is a perfect time to purchase decorative pots as many are on end-of-summer sales. Philodendrons are a good choice for inexpensive indoor plants as they do well as table top plants to add a spark of life to your table décor.

3. Add a new pop color by painting a piece of furniture.

Depending on what type of furniture you are painting will depend on how it should be painted. You can quickly transform a small piece into an unexpected pop of color in the room. Pick a fun accent color.  Perhaps your inspiration color is already present in your couch, rug or art.

4. Add decoration with a fun tray.

If you need a quick coffee table arrangement, add a tray to tie a vignette of accessories together. Transform a tray you own, or pick one up at your local craft store and grab the paint you will need while you are there. For inspiration, click here to view ideas on Pinterest.

5. Add a stunning pillow.

Choose from one of the many embellished, beaded, faux fur, beautiful embroidered pillows that can be quite expensive. Because you are buying only one as a pop of color or texture to an existing room, it’s a fun way to add interest and a flash of panache to a drab chair or love-seat.

5 Quick Decorating Ideas to Brighten Your Home

iStock_000020310504SmallDo you have areas of your home that you are not happy with or would like to change? If you are looking for some quick change ups as we enter spring but you don’t have the time to repaint, or remove that old wallpaper, consider one of these five decorating ideas to brighten your house quickly:

  1. Add a new pillow to an old couch or chair. Choose a color that pops and complements your environment. For example, if you have a predominantly brown room select a color you love such as orange, bright green or yellow. Scatter that new color around the room in accessories such as a throw, pillows, and candle color or vase color.
  2. If you’re tired of your lamps, consider painting them, even if your lamps are brass. By preparing the lamp you can end up with a beautiful new look. To cover a brass or metal lamp consider using a primer such as Rust-Oleum’s Clean Metal Primer and then Rust-Oleum’s Protective Spray Enamel in your desired color and finish. Remember to update your lampshades as well! Note, if you are starting with an old brass lamp, you should clean it thoroughly by using vinegar and a soft cloth.
  3. Nothing says springtime more than a vase of tulips! Add an instant pop of color by adding inexpensive grocery store flowers in your living space.
  4. If you have old wallpaper that you are tired of, consider covering it with a gallery wall displaying family photos or artwork that brings you joy. Be sure to tie this look together by using picture frames of the same color, which you can achieve with the appropriate color of spray paint. By covering the wall with things you love you instantly will feel better about the space.
  5. If you have a dull area, an empty foyer, or area that needs some new life consider a houseplant! If you need help picking a houseplant click here.
